Paris - Racing-Metro's Springbok utility back Frans Steyn will be fit to play the Top 14 playoff tie against Toulon on May 26 after recovering from a thigh injury, his club confirmed on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old - a World Cup winner in 2007 - has not played since April 21 because of the injury.

Centre Henry Chavancy has also been given the all clear but the Paris-based side still have injury worries ahead of the tie for a place in the semi-finals.

Flyhalf Jonathan Wisniewski (thigh), hooker Thomas Bianchin (shoulder), winger Sireli Bobo (shoulder) and lock Santiago Dellape (Achilles tendon) are still recovering.

Steyn's return to action should also be a boost for the Springboks, who take on England in a three-Test series in June.
